Main Gate / Info Booth / Beer Tent

Post by Tom » Sun Aug 05, 2018 5:27 pm

     

The Tangled Branch is dedicated to advancing poetry. To that end, we host the historic, addictive, controversial and uninhibited Midsummer Poetry Fest -- cold beer, tasty wine, cheap bourbon - whatever turns your crank, but for sure cranks will be turning, churning burning lines and lies and clumps versificated and otherwise, toward victory [or otherwise] dances around the campfires and bonfires toward morning, to reconvene and reversify, reload and rehydrate, and to re-write the poems of summer, each and every summer, all to the delight and amazement those still capable of being delighted and amazed.  

So take what steps you may need to make yourself [again] capable of delight and amazement -- both the giving and the receiving.

It's summer . . . when the magic happens.   :) :) :)

Think of this thread as the Station Potation -- Station Hydration . . . or libation, palpation, oration, ovation, palliation, titration, furcation, jactation (not what you think), mutation, ligation . . . okay maybe not ligation.  But the others. Yes, the others for sure.   :)   

But mainly this is the beer tent.

Go to the other threads, write poems, post poems, heckle the other writers - blow their doors off with your spontaneous brilliance!

Then come back here for more beer, to brag, and tell tall tales - if you haven’t already told them in prosody or other versificating elucidations. .

Colm, Sharon and Tim have arrived :) :)   

Welcome, poetically inclined earth creatures!

Look at the views these threads are getting -- there must be more hornswogglers and snozwangers crouching in the weeds around the clearing.  

Come out, come out, wherever you are!  :D :D :D

Heads-up for those intending to have poems considered for the contest to name the Poet Laureate of 2018 MSPF---- 

The submission time closes with the close of day today, Day Five of the Fest.  So scurry if you want to be in.

Go! Go! Go!

As time is winding down on the Fest, its a good time show some of the pictures snapped by the MSPF Photographer of the revelry:

I think the above pic was taken during the intermission of Mark's reading.

And this I believe the picture below was the reception near Tim's tent:

Don't quote me, but I think this is either Colm's relatives, or the group he brought back from the Pub. :shock:

And now its time to say faretheewell:
